10:10 pm
>> vice president gary schultz and athletic director tim curley did step down late saturday from their posts. we've just learned they were released on bail from jail. investigators believe sandusky who was arrested saturday likely has more victims out there and they're asking for any of those victims to come forward. >> wisdom, what happens to joe pa? >> that's the big question here is authorities say football coach joe paterno is not a target of the investigation into how the school handled the accusations, but there is talk -- we're talking about talk -- among the alumni, in the sports world, people at penn state that he should step down the end of the season. so there's a possibility this all could bring his career at penn state to an end. well, it is monday. we are down in the newsroom talking to state of the skins -- talk the state of skins with sports director dave feldman. i always wouldn'ted to have a groundhog day -- wanted to have
10:11 pm
a groundhog day and we could do everything over and over again that we'd like. what's the deal? >> they've lost four straight. this one like many of them, the one in toronto against the bills you never really felt they were in it, like the air in fedex field got sucked out so early even though the final score was 19-11 and you follow football, it was not a game that was that close. no, it wasn't. the defense made a statement early, 9ers first possession ryan kerrigan blows up alex smith. the defense surrendered only 19 points and only one touchdown, but the offense is where you got problems. john beck continued to struggle. they just had 11 points and 31 points over the three games he's started. the result is a four-game losing streak. mike shanahan has experienced four four-game losing streaks and two are now with the redskins. >> you just got to play through it. hopefully it doesn't happen too many times or you won't be in this profession very long. that's the nature of the game,
10:12 pm
but i always approach it the same way. starting off the season 0-4 one year and it's tough because you put so much time in and guys play extremely hard. so you got to find way to get in the win column. >> sometimes i think it's a goal this way about battling adversity. i just look at it as those games that have happened have happened. doesn't really matter. what matters now is the game at hand. we're going to work to improve to be better. we can put points on the board as an offense and help defense out. >> they weren't jumping on our backs and we were 31st in the league last year so it's not right for us to jump -- so it's not right for to us jump down their backs the minute they're struggling. >> there was give and take about the word rebuilt. mike shanahan was asked today is this a rebuilding team and he said no and they checked back and he said when i told my son kyle to come here maybe he shunt because it is going to be a rebuilding year -- shouldn't because it is going to be a rebuilding year.
10:13 pm
so he goes back and forth whether it's rebuilding or they've lost a lot of veterans and the rookies afternoon stepping up. either way they've -- rookies aren't stepping up. either way, the good news is they're going to may the dolphins in miami. if you're looking for a w, maybe next beach in south beach is where you would find one. >> let's hope so. jim zorn not look doing bad right now. >> he's one game better than shanahan. let's talk a bit about the quarterback. earlier we asked who should be the redskins starting qb? the answers are the opposite of our poll last week. 80% said give the ball back to rex. 20% said let john beck keep it. we'll see what happens. a shocking crime on a nearby college campus, tonight one student accused of stabbing another to death. find out what police say sparked the violence. plus it's occupy d.c. versus mpd after several protesters were hit by a car,

welcome back, everyone. we are in the weather center now with sue palka wants tracking not storms tonight but -- who is tracking not
10:26 pm
storms tonight, but you're tracking a moonster astroid that's supposed to pass by earth? >> this is a big deal. it's this big guy here. this astroid has a big long complicated number which we'll talk about in a minute but it's the closest we've known about an astroid that's going to come and tomorrow it will pass 198,000 miles from earth which is closer than the moon. it's going to happen about 6:28 tomorrow night. the good news is it's not going to hit us. here's more on the astroid. >> it's going to be moving very rapidly. >> a huge astroid named 2005yu55 will be passing between the earth and moon. scientists say the space rock bigger than an aircraft carrier is now approaching from the direction of the sun. earth's close encounter is expected to occur about 6:30 p.m. eastern on tuesday. >> it will be moving straight at us from one direction and go whizzing by straightaway from us in the other direction. so its motion across the sky
10:27 pm
will be close to 180 degrees over the course of less than two days. >> scientists have been tracking the slowly spinning rock since its discovery six years ago. the astroid completes one trip around the sun every 15 months. if the rock were to plow into earth it would blast out a crater 4 miles across and 1700 feet deep, but according to computer models showing the path for the knicks 100 years there is no chance it will -- next 100 years, there is no chance it will hit earth during that time. >> it cannot hit earth at least over the interval we can compute the motion reliably which extends for several hundred years. >> that's pretty good. this is a great opportunity for scientists to study it, but you know the obvious question, right? >> we all want to know will we be able to see this big guy when he goes by earth? >> should we go outside and try to see it with the naked eye? i wouldn't bother it. i think it would be really hard. an experienced amateur may be age to get a photograph, but it will be zipping by -- able to
10:28 pm
get a photograph, but it will be zipping by really quickly. also radar will be trained on it to try and get a picture of it, but that size a huge deal. it's the equivalent of several thousand tons of tnt if it were to hit earth and the next time it makes this clip again is 2041. >> we were trying to come up with the name of that movie that bruce willis went in and blew up the astroids. >> i can't remember the name of the movie but that's a good plan. >> send me a message on facebook and let me know if you remember the name. >> if we get some good pictures, we'll show them tomorrow night. go to www.myfoxdc.com on the weather tab. look for weather features. our space guy greg redford is blogging about it. he'll have all the latest in sky charts and where you can find it. herman cain facing sexual harassment allegations but climbing in the polls. what's up with that? we'll explore next. then have you seen this dog? one family is forking over an

10:31 pm
10:32 pm
one of our top stories, taking a closer look, another bombshell on herman cain's presidential campaign, a fourth woman now coming forward with sexual harassment allegations. during a press conference with her attorney gloria allred sharon bialek accused cain of groping for her when she asked for help finding a job. cain filed a statement jointing the accusations as well. what does all this -- disputing the accusations as well. what does all this mean for herman cain's future? herman cain has spooned by essentially blaming the immediate -- responded by essentially blaming the media for being obsessed with nonsense that. seems valid unless you realize this man is running for president and wants him to trust us with our lives and country. he's got to do better than blaming the media, right? >> i don't know. i think he's dead on.
10:33 pm
i think this first will help him immensely because it prevents the other candidates from getting their message out. he sucks out the oxygen out of the system. he's becoming a household name which he really wasn't before. the other thing is this is 15 years ago, a he said she said. don't know how the media can deal with this. is the media going to try the case on national television? i hope we're not back to the '90s with geraldo and layer cringe and all these kangaroo court -- larry king and all these kangaroo courts they had when they tried clinton and others. i think cain is right on. >> if cain were plummeting in the polls, he probably would react differently now. he's not, but i'm wondering if he's missing the bigger picture because these polls are really a republican echo chamber aren't they? >> he has earned quite a bit of money in the last couple week and is surging a bit in the polls. it would be interesting to see if he could sustain that rise. i think the biggest problem for herman cain is he failed crisis communications 101.
10:34 pm
he did not adequately shoot down these allegations when they first surfaced and today we have a face that's going to represent all four folks who have come forward and leveled charges against him. >> i don't know. he issued a strong denial. the media can go ahead and look for tiny inconsistencies and they say aha, i see a tiny inconsistency. he's not telling the truth. here's the bottom line. there exists no proof for any of these allegations. i don't care if you have four or 400 women. you look at gloria allred, she has so many of these kinds of clients all she has to do is redact the name, use the same statement and print out the statement and the women can read them all. there's a cottage industry in this country of people who sit around and make money off all this stuff. >> but if we take a step back here and i think even you would say herman cain is a long shot for the republican nomination. if he is suck being the oxygen
10:35 pm
out -- sucking the oxygen out, isn't this sort of an i co chamber of the republican core base -- an echo chamber of the republican core base that feels like herman cain is piled out, so they say they like herman cain even more now? >> i think the appearance of gloria allred will only inflame cain supporters, but let's see if it keeps going. i think herman cain's seen better days. let's face it. this guy started the campaign to sell books, elevate his profile and raise his speaking fees on tours. >> before these charges emerged his greatest fear was oh, my gosh i might actually be the nominee. >> i don't see -- i agree with you, he probably didn't think he'd win and he's probably far buffe where he ever thought he'd be but i'll -- above where he ever thought he'd be, but i'll tell you i see this as helping herman cain, that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger. that's certainly true in politics. remember what happened to clinton and i was part of the
10:36 pm
republican brigade going after him as you both well recall in the late '90s. on the day clinton was impeached by the house his overall numbers soared above 70% and he never looked back. we learned a lesson. >> we've certainly seen politicians survive far worse but herman cain has got to get better at answering questions and has to get nora impressive and move on to something else bee -- more aggressive and move auto to something else besides 9-9 -- auto to something else besides 9-9 -- on to something else besides 9-9-9. >> thank you guys for coming in. i guess we'll leave it there. virginia voters head to the polls tomorrow. the entire state legislature is on the ballot. republicans control the house of delegate, democrats the state senate but some analysts believe the republicans will be in control of both houses. voter turnout is expected to be light. four years ago only 30% of registered voters cast ballots.
